Resource Description:
This two-and-half-story house is an example of an early Arts and Crafts Period House, as identified in the Multiple Property Documentation Form “Residential Architecture of Pasadena, CA 1895-1918: Influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement” with elements of the Shingle Style. It has highly symmetrical facades and a cross-gabled roof with extended open eaves with curved exposed rafters and wide barge boards with curved ends supported by knee braces. The west-facing gable has an attic window within curving recessed walls, while a similar window on the north-facing gable has a shallow projecting hood. The full-width front porch on the west elevation has a hipped roof with a large central gable with three louvered vents supported by heavy bracketed wood columns. The foundation of the house and low walls on the front porch are brick. Exterior walls are clad in rectangular wood shingles on the upper floors and wood lap siding with mitered corners on the first floor. Windows are double-hung multi-light upper sashes in wood-framed openings. On the west elevation, window groupings have shallow projecting hoods with a sawtooth shingle edge above. The front door is an original wood door with a rectangular glass panel in a wood-framed opening flanked by sidelights. The property is surrounded by
an ornamental steel fence. The detached garage, which faces E. Villa Street, appears larger than the garage depicted in the 1910 Sanborn Fire Insurance map and, although compatible with the house, is non-contributing.
